A couple of friends have been blowin up my dash with Doctor Who talk in the past couple of days (cough Dorian and Natalie I love you cough) and I wanted to call some attention to this piece by Sady Doyle, which clearly enumerates some of the more gender-y problems with “Let’s Kill Hitler.”
In the end, the reason I stopped caring comes down to one moment. Five simple words: “But what do I think?” Just like that, I was done. That was the moment that Doctor Who officially ceded its claims to its own title, and became a very different, much worse show — the show I’ve come to think of as Nurse Rory.
The thing is that I agree with a lot of what Sady says… but I’m still going to keep watching, because Eleven is my hella problematic jam. Unless next week is as horrible as LKH was. Then I might stop.
[Also, I was tagging this, thinking ‘okay, eleventh doctor, amy pond, rory… pond?’]
